This past weekend the 139th Operations Group had an opportunity to work with their Aircrew Contamination Control Area (ACCA) during a decontamination exercise. The exercise is designed to relocate airmen from an aircraft to an ACCA in order to decontaminate their aircrew flight equipment.
Leaders from the 139th Airlift Wing were invited to Washington, D.C., by civic leaders from St. Joseph to attend their annual “DC Fly-In”. The group met with their representatives and discussed issues that affect the community.
In July 1993, the Missouri River flooded Rosecrans Memorial Airport. Here is a video of the flood waters on the base.

#tbt In March of 2012 Region 7 Homeland Response Force participated in an exercise at Muscatatuck Urban Training Center in Indiana. More than 500 Missouri National Guard soldiers and airmen participated in the exercise evaluating their ability to react to large-scale disasters.
Lt. Gen. L. Scott Rice, Air National Guard Director, presented the director’s coin to Annette Weeks in recognition of her support to the 139th Airlift Wing, Missouri Air National Guard, April 3, 2019 at the National Guard Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. Weeks has over 10 relatives who serve in the 139th including three sons.
#tbt After a week of our Airmen filling more than 20,000 sandbags to strengthen our communities levee during the recent flooding, it felt fitting to post a throwback to an image from June 10, 2011 that mirrored the ones that have recently been posted. Always ready, ever willing.
The Missouri River is projected to reach 26.5’ Tuesday morning, March 26, 2019. Initial recovery efforts are ongoing and we will commence full recovery efforts at Rosecrans Air National Guard Base in accordance with normal duty schedules starting Tuesday, March 26. Please reach out and utilize your respective chain of command for direction and taskings. As of 4:00 p.m. on March 25, all QRF forces are released.
Around 20,000 sandbags, over 200 Airmen, and 1,000 tons of sand helped hold back a record breaking water level from over taking the levee. "Without them, we would have had water over the top of the levee, their efforts directly impacted whether we had water coming up to Elwood," Rick Howell, acting Doniphan County PIO, said.
As the flood waters continue to recede, the base is still closed. On Monday, at the direction of the Emergency Operations Center, limited personnel will begin the reconstitution of the base. All members should utilize your chain of command for further instructions.
Airmen treated a sand boil at the base of the levee that protects Rosecrans Memorial Airport and surrounding communities on March 22, 2019 in Elwood, Kan. Sand boils are caused when pressure from the river pushes water under the levee. Airmen from the 139th Airlift Wing, Missouri Air National Guard, remain on standby to assist local authorities.
Shout out to the USO for feeding our Airmen who are on flood duty!
This #SaturdayMorning Airmen lay a plastic wrap over sandbags to help prevent water from seeping through the half mile portion of reinforced levee along the Missouri River.
